Report a lead on suspected tax or benefit cheating in Canada – Overview
If you suspect a person, business or charity of tax or benefit cheating in Canada, report them to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) by submitting a lead to the Leads Program. If your information is related to Canadians cheating taxes internationally, you have to submit it under a different program, the Offshore Tax Informant Program.
How you make a difference
The CRA uses the information in your lead to make sure the tax system is fair for all Canadians. Your lead could also boost the actions the CRA is already taking to fight cheating. However, you will not receive feedback or updates after you submit a lead. This is because the CRA cannot disclose information about other persons. Furthermore, the CRA does not give monetary rewards for information about suspected cheating under the Leads Program. When you submit a lead, you are supporting your community and the programs and services we all rely on to improve quality of life in Canada.
